Law Society Gazette: Bates Wells writes on amenability to judicial review

Melanie Carter and Alistair Williams from our Public & Regulatory team have written for the Law Society Gazette on amenability to judicial review.

Public & Regulatory

Their article explores the recent case of R (on the application of Holmcroft Properties Ltd) v KPMG LLP [2018] EWCA Civ 2093 where the Court of Appeal upheld the Divisional Court’s decision that KPMG was not amenable to judicial review when acting as an independent reviewer, whose appointment by a bank was approved by the Financial Services Authority.

The article concludes that the case is a useful reminder of the fact that questions of amenability to judicial review turn on function not form and emphaises the need to consider the wider regulatory and factual contexts.
